Primco Management Mourns the Loss of Legendary Radio Icon Casey Kasem
June 20, 2014 --
LOS ANGELES, June 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Primco Management, Inc. (OTCQB: PMCM), a multi-media and medical marijuana real estate management company, mourns the loss of the King of The Countdowns, Casey Kasem, who entertained radio listeners for over four decades. The host of such iconic countdown shows as American Top 40 and America's Top 10, died Sunday, June 15, 2014.
Kasem was already a popular disc jockey in Los Angeles when he became the host of American Top 40 in 1970. The syndicated show, which counted down the top 40 most popular songs in the United States based on Billboard Magazine's Hot 100 music chart, began on just seven radio stations but quickly became a mainstay for fans around the world.
In 1999, Kasem teamed with Top Sail Productions to launch his own hit-driven compilation CD series titled Casey Kasem presents America's Top 10 Hits. Each CD includes 20 Top 10 hits from each decade of the pop/rock era: the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. The CD series has been extremely successful, with sales of over 2,000,000 units and gross revenue of over $22 million dollars.
In 2013, Primco Management acquired Top Sail Productions along with the rights to market, sell, and promote the America's Top 10 CD series. This CD series was one of the very few products that Casey Kasem ever endorsed and supported. To honor his memory and his legacy, the company will continue to sell and promote the series with the respect and integrity it deserves.
Primco/ESMG and Top Sail Productions send their condolences to all of Casey Kasem's family, friends and fans.
